    Quite the catch up I had, Simon! Excellent progress, despite of the fight :clap:

     

    Ciao

    What would model building be like if you did not have to battle something?

     

    Thanks @AliGauld, @elger, @corsaircorp and @Hamden.

     

    Well, time for a short up date.

     

    Tail feathers blended in nicely, (I hope).

     

    DSCN2997

     

    DSCN2998

     

    I.P. and coaming fitted.

     

    DSCN2999

     

    DSCN3000

     

    And the Oil cooler "Scoop" added to.

     

    DSCN3001

     

    A bit of work there needless to say.

     

    Just a couple of parts to fit I think before the dreaded masking and application of the "Lie Detector" (Primer).

     

    Stay safe.

  2. Thanks @AliGauld, @elger and @Hamden.

     

    While waiting for the tail feathers to set I decided to attack the last bits of P.E., namely the underwing stores stays.

     

    DSCN2993

     

    Yep that`s a 5p coin .

    The three circles had to be folded "Z" like.

     

    DSCN2994

     

    Before fitting to the pylons.

     

    DSCN2995

     

    DSCN2996

     

    They still have to be bent upwards but will wait until they have set..

     

    I still have the other two to build/fold.

     

    Stay safe.

     

    Simon.

    Happy new year to you and yours !!

    Many kits in 2023 !!

    And to you and yours CC, and I have a STABLE stash (Stash attained beyond life expectancy)

     

    Thanks @Bell209, @Hamden, @elger, @cobraleader and @AliGauld.

     

    Well, left overnight then attacked with some wet and dry (Wet) this was the result.

     

    DSCN2987

     

    DSCN2988

     

    Tail feathers assemble.

     

    DSCN2989

     

    And fitted.

     

    DSCN2991

     

    DSCN2990

     

    DSCN2992

     

    Leave those to set before maybe a swipe of filler?

     

    And yes, my camera is fully charged now, so better pics hopefully.

     

    Stay safe.

    I was heading out to get some paint sprayed to check the join when there was a knock at the door and three brass monkeys asked me if I knew of any brazing emporiums that might be open today.

    I'll leave the paint until tomorrow.

    Yep, that wind has got a chill to it, even down south mate.

    Once you get the lie detector on i.e. primer it will show any faults as always.

     

    Try and keep warm mate.

    The IP is spectacular but that step is going to require a little work.

    Although I have no doubt it will just be a little extra until you get it sorted.

     

    Cheers,

    Alistair

    Sadly Alistair the amount of plastic I removed/ sanded away sorting the seam out has come back t haunt me but.. we will see.

     

    Thanks @elger

     

    Well, I took the plunge and glued the wings on.

     

    DSCN2986

     

    My camera died so phone pics for now. (Camera battery charging)

    I left the inner trailing edge un glued after reading a write up on this kit, and does make for easier alignment.

     

    Leave that to dry now, and see what filling needs to be done.

     

    Stay safe.

     

    Simon.

  6. Hi folks, and a very happy New Year to you all.

     

    Thanks @giemme, @elger, @corsaircorp, @Hamden, @cobraleader and @AliGauld.

     

    OK, time for an update.

    Gunsight finished, as well as the IP + coaming, ready to fit.

     

    DSCN2985

     

    DSCN2984

     

    Started to make some templates for the Main U/C bays.

     

    DSCN2983

     

    I will transfer them to card later.

     

    A word of warning to anyone building this kit, make sure that this area is cleaned as it fits into the cockpit floor.

     

    DSCN2982

     

    I am sorry that this one is blurred but it shows the problem I have with fitting the wings.

     

    DSCN2981

     

    When sanding the fuselage nose area I removed to much plastic.

     

    DSCN2980

     

    Hence the lip, damn...

     

    When squeezed together there is still the gap, but removing anymore plastic is a no no, as the wings abut the cockpit floor and won`t go any tighter.

     

    Well, off for a cuppa now. 

     

    Stay safe.

     

    Simon.
